Jessica Miller, Executive Director

Jessica Miller (formerly Harbert) took the helm in late 2014. She keeps the show running and and the lights on. She has loved and been involved for Make.Shift since she first heard about it. Her love of the Bellingham community, local art and music have always been a priority in her life during her years in Bellingham. Jessica graduated from Western Washington University, and has since written for the Bellingham Herald, managed local restaurant Bayou on Bay for years, helped open Rock and Rye Oyster House and serves on the board at the Downtown Bellingham Partnership. Her creative medium is writing.

Stuart is a current student at Western Washington University pursuing a degree in Audio Technology, Music, and Youth Work through Fairhaven College.”
